I just got a cMbp 13" i5 basic model a couple of days ago on black friday/weekend. I wanted to get a mac because I do alot of music creation like dubstep, techno, house, etc. I also wanted a good video editing program and I heard that final cut is at the top. So, I got the mac and everything but I am kind of having buyer's remorse. I have a 17" acer aspire 7551g with 6gb of ram, 512mb Gfx card, 750 gb hdd, 17 inch screen. On my macbook, the battery life is absolutely awesome, and I'm getting about 2-3hours of battery on my acer. I am pretty happy with logic pro 9 and final cut, but I could probably still be doing the same thing on my pc. I really don't know if I should return the macbook or not. The battery life is something I will need the in the future and I need a laptop that can be portable and powerful, but it's not really worth $1100 in my opinion. Can someone give me a reason to maybe keep my macbook?
